Bargain Hunter: Rocket yoga helps you reach for the stars


Fancy getting fit at an al fresco yoga class this summer? For the next two Fridays in London's Covent Garden fitness studio Yotopia is offering outdoor Rocket Yoga classes, and asks attendees to simply pay what they can afford.

The Rocket is a style of yoga developed by a San Francisco studio. It breaks down some of the rules of traditional Ashtanga and hopes, in the process, to make yoga more accessible. Classes will be held on Friday 2 and 9 August at 5.15pm-6.30pm in St Martin's Courtyard. There's no booking required and some mats will be provided, but you should bring your own to avoid disappointment. For more info go to
